Satelliz nominated for Best Cloud Startup Trophy 2012

On 21 March 2012, Satelliz was nominated for the Best Cloud Startup Trophy 2012 in the 6th annual EuroCloud France Trophies.

The 6th annual EuroCloud France Trophies event was held on 21 March 2012 at the “Etats Généraux du Cloud” convention organised by the EuroCloud France association.

This event, which took place in the luxurious setting of the Hôtel Potocki (a listed building owned by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry), was a great success, attracting over 400 cloud computing players and decision-makers.

The Cloud Trophies 2012 were awarded to the top players in the following five categories: Best Cloud Startup, Best Cloud Offering, Best Financial Performance, Best Private Customer Case, and Best Public Customer Case.

With no less than 115 applications—75 of which were in the Best Cloud Startup category—the 6th annual Cloud Trophies event was a great success, clearly illustrating the cloud businesses’ dynamism, market growth and entrepreneurial drive.

The Trophies Jury, chaired by Maya Dan (www.lalettredusaas.com), is formed of independent personalities recognised for their commitment to cloud computing. They include: Jean-Michel Billaut (billaut.typepad.com), Jean-Stéphane Bonneton (Time Equity Partners), Antoine Crochet-Damais (Le Journal du Net), Jean-Noël de Galzain (Wallix), Kareen Frascaria-Fossard (Cloudnews.fr), Matthieu Hug (RunMyProcess), Éric Lefebvre (KPMG), Louis Nauges (Revevol), Emmanuelle Olivié-Paul (Markess International), Guillaume Plouin (OCTO Technology), …

At 2 pm, Maya Dan, the Jury’s Chairperson, declared the 6th Trophies presentation ceremony open to a packed audience. The first Trophy to be awarded was for the Best Cloud Startup 2012, the category in which Satelliz was competing.

All of the nominees were announced and invited onto the stage to present their business and solution:

  • Cedexis: content distribution strategies for businesses wishing to optimise their Web performance;
  • SATELLIZ: cloud monitoring & 24/7 remote incident management SaaS solution;
  • SRMVision: customer–IT service provider relationship monitoring and assessment SaaS solution;
  • Tactill: till solution on iPad

The sealed envelope was then opened and the Trophy winner announced: Cedexis.

Congratulations to Cedexis, an innovative company that already has an impressive list of customer references; we wish the company every success.

We already knew Cedexis, as we had both presented our complementary solutions on 7 February last at a EuroCloud France Startup workshop on the subject of cloud computing performance monitoring and optimisation.

The Cloud Trophies 2012 appeared widely in the press, especially:
– Le Journal du Net - Journal du Net article.
- La Lettre du SaaS et du Cloud – File on cloud startups.

We wish to thank the organisers and partners of the 6th annual Trophies event, which was seen by all as a great success; see you again next year!
